RAID Tips 10 of 10 - Recover a failed RAID.

If a disk fails in a fault-tolerant array such as RAID5, you just replace the disk an carry on.
However, if there is a controller failure or an operator error, you might end up with a set of disks lacking the array configuration.

You can then send the disk set to the data recovery lab, or try to get the data off yourself using ReclaiMe Free RAID Recovery. The most difficult part of RAID recovery is the destriping, the process of converting the striped array to the contiguous set of sectors as it is on a regular hard drive. ReclaiMe Free RAID Recovery does exactly that, giving you a choice of several output options, and at no cost.
